PROJECT OUR FRIENDS FROM ENGLAND LYCEUM №32 BELGOROD WELCOME TO CASTLEFORD • Castleford is a town in the county of West Yorkshire, England, near to Pontefract with a population of approximately 40.000 people.To the north are the river Calder, the river Aire and the Aire and Calder Navigation. To the west and south is the M62 motorway. • The town is the site of the Roman army settlement of Lagentium, also known as Legioleum. The name of the town is derived from this, Castle (referring to the Roman fort) and Ford (referring to the river Aire which runs through Castleford). Castleford’s Life The town started as a quiet village, but between 1811 and 1891, its population increased from 890 to 14,000,due to the Industrial Revolution. Many people worked in coal mines and in the glass-making, chemical and textile industries. The famous sculptor Henry Moore was born in Castleford ,the son of a miner; some of his works can be seen at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park at Bretton. Castleford’s favourite sport is Rugby League. The local team, Castleford Tigers, is in the Superleague. Meet Airedale High School Our pen-friends study at the Airedale High School. It is in Castleford.

OUT – OF – CLASS ACTIVITY There are a lot of clubs at Airedale High School. Students are fond of dancing, jazz, arts, singing, theatre. Often they held Presentation Evenings with plenty of entertainment from students with poetry reading, break dancing, theatre , shows. Airedale High School organized a fund raiser for «Children in Need». The main event was an auction with items donated from Castleford’s companies and individuals. These ranged from children’s games to stereos and paintings from local artist Harry Malkin. It was a tremendous success. They raised a great sum of money for charity.
